The Apex Socio-cultural youth organization of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Ohanaeze Youth Council OYC has berated the Governor of Anambra State Gov. CHARLES SOLUDO over his new deal with President Mohammadu Buhari to maim and slaughter suspected IPOB members in his state.

Addressing newsmen in Owerri , Imo State capital on Wednesday 13th July 2022 the national President of Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, Comrade. Igboayaka O. Igboayaka decried what he described as the insensitivity of president Mohammadu Buhari government in dealing with issues as it pertains to IPOB since he came into power in 2015.

Comrade Igboayaka stated pointedly that the approach president Mohammadu Buhari over the agitation of Biafra by IPOB was an indication that he “has signed a deal to depopulate Igbo youths in a disguised vindictive fight against insecurity in Southeast.

Reacting to the recent massacre of defenseless civilian Igbo youths at Ogbaru in attempt of hunting criminals, Igboayaka lamented that same was a true picture of the then “blood of Nigeria” of 1967 wherein every male child of Igbo extraction was massacred at Ogbe Osowa, square in Asaba, Delta State capital.

The Igbo youth leader recalled that Nigeria military had launched an attack on criminal gangs on 28th June 2022 at Ogbaru, an attack which regrettably claimed the lives of over 40 Igbo youths “under the pretence of killing Unknown GunMen, while the target was to eliminate Ipob members.

“It is truism that Ogbaru is one of the Anambra LGAs presently under the grip of syndicated criminal entities engaging in several nefarious activities including abductions, killings, armed robberies and ransom demands claiming to be Eastern Security Network (ESN). But latest findings by Intersociety showed that the criminal entities are camped inside big river/swamp Forest of Obene-Ochuche/Umuzu/Okija divided by Ulasi River. The area covers Ogbaru Communities of Atani, Amiyi, Umuzu, Ochuche, Akiri-Ozuzu, Osamari, Umunankwo and Ogwuanaocha.

Furthermore, he blamed the Nigerian government for grossly failing to bring to book perpetrators, as well as masterminds of the April, 2021 Owerri Prison break and the like, which inarguably had tens of terrorist gangs free from detention.

In addition, he hinted that the President Mohammadu Buhari led administration had treated with a rebuff all attempts to get them prove their innocence thereby producing the footage of Owerri prison break and other related invasions.

Speaking amidst agony and indignation, Igboayaka lamented that: “It’s Very unfortunately that prisoner’s Nigeria political Actors released in Owerri Prison, just to demonize Ipob/ESN has been the gangs that segmented themselves into various gangs terrorizing South- Eastners including the dreaded Fulani herdsmen. Till today none of those who masterminded the Owerri Prison invasion has been arrested.

“I have challenged the Nigeria police and Nigeria Government to order for the release of Footage of Owerri prison Break, let’s know how Nigeria government will exonerate itself from the criminalities that have been happening in Southeast since January 2021. For these criminal gangs to operate in Owerri Prison for fours hours without reprisal attack by Security agents at State Police Headquarters and 32 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, that’s just 10 minutes drive gives us impression that Owerri prison break was a state crime.

“It’s unacceptable to the entire Igbo race that the rampaging military personnel at Ogbaru also went into villages and broke homes at late night, forcing scores to be killed and other innocent youths of the affected communities to escape through River Niger and others.

“Unfortunately the search for IPOB members is going on in Ihiala, where many have been commissioned to pinpoint homes of Ipob members in Anambra for elimination, under the supervision of Gov. Charles Soludo.

It’s at the peak of this ethnic cleansing of Igbo youths I call on International communities that president Mohammadu Buhari and Gov. Charles Soludo must be held responsible for wantons killings of Ndigbo in Anambra State.

It’s quite clear in our reliable source that there was no credible evidence of the slain being killed in a gun duel as no single report of killing of soldiers or wounding them was recorded. The sanctity of human lives was never prioritized or considered, by Gov. Charles Soludo led administration.

Finally, in the usual way of Nigeria security agents justifying their conduct atrocities, attached pictures and videos showed how they placed ‘pump action guns’ on body top of some victims that raided traditional religious sanctuaries and destroyed them or displayed their items to make their massacre pictorially trademarked their usually concocted “ESN/IPOB mayhem or attacks or terrorism, Igboayaka pointed out.

He however accuses Federal Government of involvement in Owerri prison break and promised to come up with his Detailed Highlights in the next edition.
